Changing behavior got you stuck? Set SMART goals to reach for the gold.
Specific, Measurable, Action-Based Behaviors, Realistic, and Time-Lined.
Example: I’ll have 2 fruits with breakfast every day for 2 weeks.
It’s specific – 2 fruits, breakfast, daily.
Measurable – food records reveal total success.
It’s Action-Based – plan for and buy the fruit, prepare it, eat it.
This is realistic!
Two weeks is the time-line.
At the end of the 2 weeks, reevaluate – can you keep this behavior going? Great, then set another SMART goal.
